Watch out for Mr. Resetti!

Oh, right, we still have more Mario Kart 8 DLC coming up. It’s been so long since I locked in my pre-order that I had totally forgotten! DLC Pack 2 marks the debut of Animal Crossing‘s Isabelle and Villager as racers, and also adds Dry Bowser, four vehicles, and eight courses.

Nintendo showed fresh footage of the Animal Crossing-themed track today, and noted that the seasons will change each time you race. Such lovely background music, too.

DLC Pack 2 launches April 23, 2015 for $7.99 and, on the same day, a free update will add the super-fast 200cc option for Mario Kart 8. This challenging new class can be selected for any of the downloadable courses as well as all existing tracks in both local and online play.

Lastly, the update will enable amiibo owners to generate costumes using Mega Man, Pac-Man, Sonic, Toad, Wario, Villager, Rosalina, Bowser, and Olimar. See a few of them below.
